I have been asked by my “overseas” readers how to do Flash Cards for A4 size cardstock and metric measuremnts. I felt terrible that I couldn’t really help because metric is way out of my comfort zone! Along came my guardian angel Angela Ebert! She emailed me the conversion in metric form. The measurements are just a TINY bit different than here in the USA but I can’t see any reason why all the Flash Card videos wouldn’t work.
A HUGE shout out to Angela Ebert for sending me the measurements on how to do it!
Original Flash Cards:
Flash Card 2.0:
Coloured cardstock starts out as 21 x 29.7 cm = A4 size
- Put short side to top edge of trimmer and cut in half @ 10.5 cm
- Put short side to top edge of trimmer and cut these pieces in half @ 5.25 cm (not at nice neat measurement )
- Put long side to top edge of trimmer and cut these 4 pieces in half @ A5 (14.8 cm)
- You will have (8) pieces 5.25 cm x 14.8 cm (2 1/16 x 5 1/2”)
Storage Boxes for Original Flash Cards:
Cut your cardstock to 9 cm x 20 cm
Score at 2.5 cm
